Anonymous, 23 Dec 2014Guuys..which is better..the z1 compact or the galaxy s4 Lte-advance???If you need a compact / small / 4,3" size, go for Z1 Compact.
Z1C is the real phone size in my opinion, more pocketable, you can use with 1 hand, and have IPS Screen for more picture quality than S4.
By the way, you can't compare with galaxy S4 because it has more large size.
Large size phone always have more specs because it has more internal space for more components.
But specs of Z1C & S4 LTE is similar. That's plus point for Z1C.
The real battle is Z1 Compact vs Galaxy S5 mini / Z1 vs Galaxy S4 LTE
Guuys..which is better..the z1 compact or the galaxy s4 Lte-advance???
This phone is supposedly awesome but it shuts down all the time, saying it's due to high temperature! Like, what the hell, Sony? Before it was working fine but now, I couldn't even send a single text! IT SUCKS. DON'T BUY THIS AT ALL. You'll go crazy with these bugs. My brother had a z2 and it shut down too. That phone NEVER came back to life. Sony, I'm so disappointed! I will never buy your products again.
jboukaram, 21 Dec 2014the best phone i ever used zero problem.That why i didn't upgrade to Z3 compactI have the same reason. I love this white version of z1c. I will just upgrade mine with the last xperia compact version of year 2016. This will receive lollipop next year so it'll still be like a new phone for another year.

Anonynous, 16 Dec 2014The flash bleed occurs on all, but to a less degree on the black ones as the bleed light is ab... moreMine didn't have flash bleed (white version). Took a photo in complete darkness with flash. I think they might have raised the silver ring around the camera lens to be in line with the upper edge of the backplate, so that it shields the camera now.
14W44 devices have shitty build quality it seems. Ordered two devices off amazon, and both of them had irregular gaps between the white plastic frame and the metal frame. Pressing on the plastic frame closes the gap. Not trusting this to be waterproof.
There is also the fact it has a scratch resistant glass on the front covered by an easily scratchable anti-shatter foil. Non JP model also has a plastic backplate which is easily scratchable as well. Protectors are pretty much mandatory.
20MP pictures have a lot of noise on ISO>200, picture detail is nothing impressive but decent. App performance is great. Battery life as well, though it needs a few charges to reach maximum capacity (this is normal).
The CPU is able to decode most 1080p 10-bit h264 fluently, eating 10% of battery per 25 minutes and gets rather warm. Not getting warm at all with other tasks though.
